About the Virtual Program and Why You Should Attend:
Every competent advocate will know the rules of the arbitral institution. But what about the practices and procedures – institutional habits – that are not in the rules? This program will provide unprecedented insight into the unwritten aspects of arbitration at the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution (SCAI). Speakers will not only be representatives of the institution itself, but also arbitrators, counsels and in-house counsel experienced in working with the SCAI – presenting also critical view and addressing sensitive topics.
As the problem of the 28th Vis Moot is subject to the Swiss Rules, the program will also address some of the procedural issues of the case right in time before the Oral Hearings. There will also be ample opportunity for participation and questions from attendees.
